Fall Quilt Market 2012: Kaffe Fassett

Kaffe Fassett is still my favourite fabric designer. For me his stuff just never gets old. I would never use it all together in one quilt but using small pieces here and there and mixing them with the other things in my stash makes my quilts sparkle. Enough of my gushing – his fall release range [...]

Kaffe Fassett Fall 2012

{ Prints from Kaffe Fassett Fall 2012, plus coordinating solids, image courtesy Pink Chalk Fabrics } Who else has been feeling jade/emerald lately? The jade in Kaffe Fassett’s Fall 2012 collection is simply bioluminescent. Love it. The new patterns are the Jupiter Stripe (which also reminds me of geodes), Oriental Trees, Chard, Peking, and Camellia – follow [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2011: Renaissance Ribbons, Oilcloth by the Yard

So, I’m not sure the next two companies technically fall into traditional True Up coverage, but I’m calling it close enough! Renaissance Ribbons probably provide most of the woven jaquard and fancier ribbons that you see at your local fabric store. They license designs from popular designers like Sue Spargo and Kaffe Fasset and their [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2011: Rowan – Kaffe Fasset Collective and Martha Negley

Westminster/Rowan had fewer of their designers on hand this year, maybe because Spring Market is a bit smaller? No matter, as their fabric offerings were, as usual, stunning (and their partner company FreeSpirit had plenty of designer booths to go around). The Kaffe Fasset Collective is comprised of Kaffe, Brandon Mably, and Philip Jacobs. While [...]

New Release Tuesday is my periodic roundup of new fabric sightings. These fresh arrivals have started to arrive in fabric shops and are ready to buy. Retailers, as always, if you carry any of these collections, let us know in the comments!   In the Kitchen is Alexander Henry’s ongoing retro-themed line, and Griffith Park [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2010 – Westminster/Rowan – Kaffe Fassett

I spent literally the final moments of fall Market at Kaffe Fassett’s booth talking to him and the always-awesome Liza Prior Lucy. So, I didn’t manage to get shots of the new prints, but I’m sure Liza wouldn’t mind me pointing you over to Glorious Color to see them! New Kaffe prints include a floral [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2010: Thread

I was thrilled to meet with Nancy Jewell of Coats & Clark and Westminster/Rowan this Quilt Market. She took me on a whirlwind tour of What’s New in Thread … the biggest news being that Rowan is introducing premium-quality, long staple Egyptian cotton thread sets and individual spools that coordinate with Amy Butler’s and Kaffe [...]
